Thank you very much Jan for your thorough reply.

I’d have another question related to cosmology.
I am wondering if Tushita and the Pure Land of Amitabha are part of the Five Pure Abodes (hence still in the realm of existence)?
I am a little bit confused, as I don’t understand how a Buddha could abide here (if it is still in existence) and, in the case these realms are out of samsara, how is it possible to be reborn here without having attained Enlightenment?

(Sorry, I had this question roaming in my mind for the last few months so I thought to take the chance to ask it in this tread in the context of cosmology)
